Hopium Machina: the French hydrogen Tesla

The incredible success of Elon Musk, who with Tesla transformed the world market for battery-powered electric cars, is being emulated in hydrogen. Olivier Lombard, racing driver and founder of the French start-up Hopium, has very big ambitions with the hydrogen Machina, which he plans to launch in 2025. “The electric car is a transitional solution, he assures. a fuel cell, the autonomy is 1,000 km and the tank is filled in three minutes. You find the freedom to move from point A to point B, without constraint in the routine of use.”
